Chris Hogan, playing against Bucknell

Former Penn State men's lacrosse midfielder Chris Hogan cradles the ball against Bucknell. Hogan was a four-year letterman with the Nittany Lions before forging an eight-year career in the NFL.

One Penn State player is making waves in the Premier Lacrosse League.

Former Nittany Lion Chris Hogan will be making his professional lacrosse debut against Whipsnakes Lacrosse Club on Saturday.

After a nine-year NFL career, Hogan decided to hang up his football cleats and exchange them with a lacrosse stick in an announcement he made in February.

On March 31, Hogan was picked up off of waivers by Cannons Lacrosse Club and is now set to make his professional debut.

Hogan and the Cannons will be taking on the two-time reigning champions in the Whipsnakes at 12 p.m. on NBC.
